Food trucks are all the rage in cities around the world — and Canadian chefs are leading the trend. The folks who run Calgary's best steakhouse, Charcut Roast House, are behind the Alley Burger truck.


  • 8 slices bacon , cut in half crosswise
  • 500 g lean ground beef , preferably Angus chuck
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup cheese curds
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 4 sesame burger buns
  • 8 slices tomato
  • 8 slices red onion
  • 12 slices dill pickle
  • 20 slices jalapeno


  • STIR mayonnaise with piri piri sauce in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • HEAT a cast iron grill pan over medium-high. Lay bacon on grill and cook until crisp, flipping halfway through, about 3 min. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Discard oil in pan.
  • MIX beef with salt and pepper and shape into 4 patties. Add to hot grill pan and cook 5 min. Flip burgers and cook 2 min. Top with cheese curds and cook 3 more min. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
  • HEAT a large non-stick pan over medium-high. Add oil, then crack eggs into the pan. Cover, and cook until set, but yolks are still runny, about 2 min.
  • ASSEMBLE burgers by laying a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of each bun. Transfer burgers to buns. Top each burger with bacon, 2 slices each tomato and onion, pickles, a fried egg and jalapeno slices. Drizzle with aioli and sandwich with top bun. Serve immediately.
